If you want to see Rizzo’s ankle he posted a pic on his IG story.

My foot looked like that when I sprained it. It doesn’t turn black and blue for 24+ hours, so it’s quite shocking to see that a day after you injure it

The caption said it was the day he returned to action so it would have been the fourth day after the injury.

Right, once it turns black and blue it stays that way for awhile.

Can confirm, played basketball in high school, severely sprained my ankle a couple times. horsefeathers hurts. Years later I will roll my ankle every now and then just taking a normal step and nearly give myself a panic attack each time in the process

I think we overlook how good Rizzo is on defense because we have El Mago on this team. I remember Derrek Lee was also really good defensively at 1B, but Rizzo is better. That defensive play at the 1:35 mark is excellent. I've never seen a first baseman make that play that deep up the 3B line and Rizzo has done that a few times now.

Congrats on winning another Gold Glove:
